THE IRREPRESSIBLE SAM GUNN
 
A hero without peer or scruples, Sam Gunn has a nose for trouble, money, and women—though not necessarily in that order.  A man with the ego (and stature) of a Napoleon, the business acumen of a P. T. Barnum, and the raging hormones of a teenage boy, Sam is the finest astronaut NASA ever trained…and dumped.
 
But more than money, more than women, Sam Gunn loves justice.  (And he really does love money and women.)  Whether he’s suing the Pope, helping twin sisters entangled in the “virtual sex” trade, or on trial for his life on charges of interplanetary genocide, you can be sure of one thing: this is one space jockey who’ll meet every challenge with a smile on his lips, an ace up his sleeve…and a weapon in his pocket.
 
Now, for the first time between covers, Hugo-winner Ben Bova presents all the tales of Sam Gunn to date, including three never before collected in book form.  Here is the entire chronicle of Sam Gunn, trailblazer and scoundrel, as he scams his way from one end of the Solar System to the other, giving bold new meaning to the term “venture capitalist.”

Book Excerpts

Read an Excerpt

SAM GUNN OMNIBUS
Selene CityTHE STORY OF SAM GUNN IS INEXTRICABLY INTERWOVEN with the story of a beautiful, vulnerable, and determined young woman. Knowing Sam, you would expect she was an object of his rabid testosterone-fed sex drive (or, as Shakespeare put it, the bottomless cistern of his lust).But you'd be wrong.She likes to be called Jade, although her name is actually Jane. Jane Avril Inconnu. Sometimes new acquaintances mistake that last name for Romanian, although her flame-red hair and dazzling green eyes speak of more northern and flamboyant lands.

Reviews

Praise for The Sam Gunn Omnibus

 “Bova is entirely equal to making the novel’s personal and corporate rivalries interesting and even compelling…Well above average as hard sf and space advocacy, so that even many non-space buffs will enjoy it.”
--Booklist on The Rock Rats

“Immensely entertaining…A cracking read.”
--SFX on The Precipice

“Recalls the work of Heinlein in his Destination Moon mode, or Hal Clement in any number of stories: a day-after-tomorrow tale crafted with near-journalistic purity…It’s a difficult, demanding mode to pursue, and not many choose to nowadays. But Bova does it magnificently.”
--Paul Di Filippo, Scifi.com, on Jupiter
 
“With Isaac Asimov and Robert Heinlein gone, Bova, author of more than 70 books, is one of the last deans of traditional science fiction. And he hasn’t lost his touch. Venus scorches.”
--Kansas City Star on Venus
 
“I believe that by far the science fiction author who will have the greatest effect on the science fiction world, and the world as a whole, is Ben Bova.”
--Ray Bradbury
